04 damage assessment methodology

  1. 1. Damage Assessment Methodology An Overview Prof. Ravi Sinha Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Seminar on Loss and Damage Assessment Methodologies, Ahmedabad, April 21, 2005 Damage and Loss Assessment Methodology Developed by Asian Disasters Preparedness Centre Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
  2. 2. Context of Damage Assessment <ul><li>Primary focus is on condition of physical assets: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Buildings (Residential, Office, Commercial, Lifeline etc.) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Roads and Bridges </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Water supply and sanitation structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dams and other irrigation structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Industrial facilities (including power plants) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ports and other coastal structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Electrical and Communications system structures </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Objectives of Damage Assessment <ul><li>Will depend on the type and intensity of the disaster </li></ul><ul><li>Minor/moderate disasters: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Estimate total losses (for reporting and policy purposes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Help develop repair/rehabilitation procedures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Major disasters: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Same objectives as for minor/moderate disasters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Also assess extent of damage to buildings and other structures (and its geographical distribution) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Objectives of Damage Assessment <ul><li>Short-Term (within a few days): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To quickly identify the safe and unsafe buildings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To quickly estimate total damage losses (for reporting and policy purposes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To quickly identify status of lifeline buildings and other structures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Medium-Term (within a few weeks): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To assess safety status of doubtful category structures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To reassess and quantify damage losses </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Long-Term (few months to years): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To help develop rehabilitation/retrofitting procedures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To help identify deficiencies in prevalent technical knowledge and its implementation mechanisms </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Primary Focus for DA <ul><li>Structures which are owned by multiple agencies of the government </li></ul><ul><li>Structures that may require government funds for repairs or rehabilitation (including private buildings) </li></ul><ul><li>Structures that affect a large number of people </li></ul><ul><li>Buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Bridges </li></ul><ul><li>Tanks and storage reservoirs (UGSR, GSR & ESR) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Secondary Focus for DA <ul><li>Structures owned or operated by specialised agencies </li></ul><ul><li>Very complex structures that require high-level technical skills for assessment </li></ul><ul><li>Complex industrial facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Port and harbour structures </li></ul><ul><li>Petrochemical infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Dams </li></ul><ul><li>Roads </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical generation & transmission networks, etc. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Basic Philosophy of DA <ul><li>Should be based on international sound-practices </li></ul><ul><li>Should consider the types of structures prevalent in Gujarat </li></ul><ul><li>Should consider the technical skills likely to be available after a disaster </li></ul><ul><li>Should incorporate experiences from recent disasters, particularly the 2001 earthquake and 1998 cyclone disasters </li></ul>
  8. 8. Damage Assessment for Buildings <ul><li>Method should dependent on building type </li></ul><ul><li>Very large number of buildings are likely to be damaged in a major disaster – Method should be relatively rapid </li></ul><ul><li>Structural repairs are based on technically detailed evaluation – Method should be technically rigorous </li></ul><ul><li>Method should consider the variations in international “best practices” </li></ul>
